    Teacher arrested after planting live ammo in school to prove point about metal detectors, police say.

    May 17, 2019 at 1:45 AM EDT - Updated May 17 at 3:41 PM
    SOUTHBRIDGE, Mass. (CNN) – A teacher in Massachusetts was arrested Thursday after leaving live ammunition in his school building’s stairwell to prove the school needed to get metal detectors, police said.

    Police said Southbridge High School teacher Alfred J. Purcell III told the staff he found a live round of 9mm ammunition in a stairwell at the school shortly after 8 a.m.

    The building was immediately placed on lockdown for about an hour.

    But police said security video later showed that Purcell himself dropped the bullet on the floor of the stairwell before quickly leaving the area.

    He returned about 10 minutes later and appeared to take a picture of the bullet with his cellphone. He then used his school-issued radio to call for help from the school administration and resource officer, according to police.

    Investigators said Purcell admitted he planted the bullet to prove the school needs to install metal detectors.

    Purcell’s defense attorney, however, said there was no such admission, but instead simply a misunderstanding, and that Purcell did not plant the bullet in the stairwell, WBZ reports.


    Police said they later searched Purcell’s car and found 102 live rounds of ammunition for a .20-gauge shotgun in his trunk on the school grounds.

    Authorities also discovered that Purcell’s license to carry a firearm was expired in Connecticut, where he resides.

    Purcell was charged with two counts of the unlawful possession of ammunition and two counts of carrying ammunition on school grounds. He also faces charges of disturbing a school assembly, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

    Purcell has been ordered to stay away from the school, WCVB reports.

    Prior to Thursday’s incident, the school had told Purcell his contract wasn’t being renewed for next year, according to WCVB.

    Our lieutenant governor had a loaded shotgun in his truck and held a jogger at gunpoint until the police arrived.

    I suspect the same thing will happen to this teacher.
    Nothing.

    Also discussed here

    My response in that thread.



    What an asshole..... I don't know of any teachers who want to be in room full of students during a lockdown. He created a situation where other teachers would probably line up to slap him upside the head. Seriously, they sit in a corner away from the door, can't talk, make noise or really move. Neither can the teacher. If someone has to go to the bathroom...... tough. If you have disruptive students in the room it can be a nightmare. No learning can take place during that time. The police have to come in spending time and effort dealing with the situation, often in swat team mode. Lockdowns are seriously disruptive. I doubt that he will be a teacher next year.

    Edit to add..... He must have already have shown his colors. He was already told he was not coming back next year.

    He was jogging while black.

    Fetterman claims that he heard "assault weapon" gunfire and went to investigate. Naturally, being the liberal, non-racist that he is, he saw the black guy running, and made the connection that he could have been the shooter, so he pulled his loaded shotgun out, jumped out of his truck, and "stopped" him.

    He claims he only "showed it to him", but who the hell would allow someone to detain them if said detainer wasn't pointing the gun at them?

    Most news coverage of this has been scrubbed from the web.
    All that remains, paints him as "trying to do good for his community".
